Salman, Shahrukh, Aamir Khan: Who will 2012 belong to?

Salman, Shahrukh, Aamir Khan: Who will 2012 belong to?

As a brand new year dawns, it’s time to put 2011 behind us and look forward to what 2012 has in store. Here are some hopes for Bollywood’s top stars, including the four Khans

Shahrukh Khan – 2011 proved with RA.One and Don 2 that the Badshah’s India base is slowly eroding while his overseas market remains robust. Yes, both of those films made some money, but they were surrounded by carping detractors and naysayers simply because the final released products did not match the King’s high and exacting standards. Here’s hoping that his leading role in Yash Chopra’s comeback film brings back the old magic. Cineswami knows that SRK is making a conscious effort to break new ground with each film, but sometimes all the fans want is old wine in a new bottle.

Salman Khan – The man had a humongous 2011 with Ready and Bodyguard, but unlike SRK, in Salman’s case it’s too much of old wine in an old bottle. Sure, the fans are lapping it up, but he owes it to them to try something new. Thankfully, he has the hatke Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger for YRF due in 2012 that also reunites him with old flame Katrina. There’s also Dabangg 2 due, but without Abhinav Kashyap’s scripting and directing acumen it’s going to be nowhere near the first one’s smartness, wit and humour.

Aamir Khan – What can we say? The perfectionist continues to astound us. It was a low key 2011 for India’s surest box office draw, but he made his mark in wife Kiran Rao’s Dhobi Ghat and shepherded Delhi Belly to being one of the standout hits of the year. His police procedural Talaash is keenly awaited. No other star would even touch a risky subject like a thriller without songs, but Aamir can and will make it work. And Reema Kagti is no slouch as a director as Honeymoon Travels proved.

Saif Ali Khan – Like Aamir, Saif too had a subdued 2011 with just a trifling appearance in the trifling film that was Aarakshan. But 2012 will see him in James Bond mode with the long delayed and keenly anticipated Agent Vinod, besides the Race sequel. With some luck Homi Adajania’s Cocktail that reunites the Chhote Nawab with Deepika Padukone should also be released in 2012.

Abhishek Bachchan – Simply put, the man needs a hit. Badly. Dum Maaro Dum and Game didn’t do anything for him in 2011. Players isn’t carrying much buzz, already being equated with Game. If it works, then it’ll be a shot in the arm for both Abhishek and Neil Nitin Mukesh. There’s hitmaker Rohit Shetty’s remake of the original GolmaalBol Bachchan – where Aby’s baby will have the added crutch of Ajay Devgn’s presence.

Ajay Devgn – He’ll want to forget Rascals in a hurry, as will Sanjay Dutt. However, he’ll carry fond memories of Singham. Priyadarshan’s Tezz is due in 2012, but let’s not hold our breath for that.

Hrithik Roshan – He tasted success with Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara in 2011 but he’ll be hoping for a solid solo hit with the Agneepath remake that rests solely on his sinewy shoulders, Sanjay Dutt’s Kancha Cheena notwithstanding. It’s unlikely that the Krrish sequel will be released in 2012, but we live in hope.

Akshay Kumar – The poor man has seen a steady drop in his popularity thanks to his poor choice of films like Patiala House and Thank You in 2011. While there always will be a market for his brand of brain-dead, infantile humour, he can’t carry it off with the pizzazz of say, Salman. 2012 will be a make or break year for him with crores riding on Joker, Housefull 2 and Rowdy Rathore that all cater to his core lowbrow market. But the film that should be his salvation in 2012 is Once Upon a Time Again.

Of the rest, Emraan Hashmi will continue ploughing his lonely yet successful Bhatt furrow, Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan no doubt regale the youth segment and the audience will give the cold shoulder to John Abraham. As for the rest, do we really care?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Yes Gaurav, you are right. Swades is the best piece of acting SRK has sdiplayed till date and Chak De is a close second. Nowadays, he just overdoes the facial expressions, esp in romantic or emotional sequences .. but being SRK we like him irrespective of all that . SRK ki saat khoon maaf.

    SRk KING.Hi is the best and to no of its vertices do not climb.

  • sarifa

    Have you ever stop to think that there are billions of people created in this world by God, and each person has different fingerprints, no two are alike, does this not tell you that each human being is a unique individual with different personalities and talents. So why keep comparing the actors with each other. Salman Khan is my favourite actor and always will b. But I also like Akshay Kuman, Aaamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra but must admit I do not fancy SRK period. Having met the man he is rude and arrogant etc. Salman is a very special person in our household because of who he is, the kids love him, Grandparents love him why? because he is special, no man is perfect and he has shown the world that he is not perfect he identifies with most of us, he does not hide behind a facade, does not keep reminding people he is some sort of a king and most of all he makes his movies for us. God bless you abundantly my brother and remember whom God has bless no man can curse.

  • harman

    shahrukh and salman please friends again

      Srk rocks in Jab Tak Hai Jaan

      • vipul

        u r right

      • Don

        Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a very bad film. It will get only 2 or 3 stars. And also Shahrukh Khan is a very bad actor in comparison to others.

  • jini

    Salman and khiladi on flor

  • Mr Singh

    This year belongs to Akshay first, then followed by Ajay Devgan and no-one else.

    Akshay has had 3 hits already. i.e. Housefull 2, RR and OMG and Khiladi 786 will be his 4th. he has come out of his bad patch in a really big way and he has once again proved that he is the hit machine! Don’t forget he had 11 hits in a row at one point and the majority of his movies that flopped in the past couplr of years were actually good, i.e. Action Replay, Khatta Meeta, Tasveer, etc.

    Ajay has already had Bol Bachan, and Son of Sardaar would’ve been the biggest hit of the year if it hadn’t released at the same time as JTHJ, but even so, it has stood side by side in India with JTHJ which is excellent! Tezz was an excellet movie as well, but as usual the audience preferred to watch worse movies!

    Akshay and Ajay all the way!
